2000 Light Years From Home – Rolling Stones

Sun turnin’ ’round with graceful motion
We’re setting off with soft explosion
Bound for a star with fiery oceans
It’s so very lonely, you’re a hundred light years from home

Freezing red deserts turn to dark
Energy here in every part
It’s so very lonely, you’re six hundred light years from home

It’s so very lonely, you’re a thousand light years from home
It’s so very lonely, you’re a thousand light years from home

Bell flight fourteen you now can land
See you on Aldebaran, safe on the green desert sand
It’s so very lonely, you’re two thousand light years from home
It’s so very lonely, you’re two thousand light years from home

2000 Man – Rolling Stones

Well, my name is a number
A piece of plastic film
And I’m growin’ funny flowers
In my little window sill

Dont you know I’m a 2000 man
And my kids, they just don’t understand me at all

Well my wife still respects me
I really misused her
I am having an affair
With the random computer

Don’t you know I’m a 2000 man
And my kids, they just don’t understand me at all

Oh daddy, proud of your planet
Oh mummy, proud of your sun
Oh daddy, proud of your planet
Oh mummy. proud of your sun
Oh daddy, your brain’s still flashin’
Like it did when you were young
Or do you come down crashin’
Seeing all the things you’d done
All was a big put on

Oh daddy, proud of your planet
Oh mummy. proud of your son
Oh daddy, proud of your planet
Oh mummy. proud of your sun

Oh daddy, proud of your planet
Oh mummy. proud of your sun
Oh daddy, proud of your planet
Oh mummy. proud of your sun

And you know who’s the 2000 man
And your kids they just won’t understand you at all

100 Years Ago – Rolling Stones

Went out walkin’ through the wood the other day
And the world was a carpet laid before me
The buds were bursting and the air smelled sweet and strange
And it seemed about a hundred years ago

Mary and I, we would sit upon a gate
Just gazin’ at some dragon in the sky
What tender days, we had no secrets hid away
Well, it seemed about a hundred years ago

Now all my friends are wearing worried smiles
Living out a dream of what they was
Don’t you think it’s sometimes wise not to grow up?

Went out walkin’ through the wood the other day
Can’t you see the furrows in my forehead?
What tender days, we had no secrets hid away
Now it seems about a hundred years ago

Now if you see me drinkin’ bad red wine
Don’t worry ’bout this man that you love
Don’t you think it’s sometimes wise not to grow up?

You’re gonna kiss and say good-bye, yeah, I warn you
You’re gonna kiss and say good-bye, yeah, I warn you
You’re gonna kiss and say good-bye, oh Lord, I warn you
And please excuse me while I hide away

Call me lazy bones
Ain’t got no time to waste away
Lazy bones ain’t got no time to waste away
Don’t you think it’s just about time to hide away? Yeah, yeah!

Yesterday’s Papers – Rolling Stones

Who wants yesterdays papers
Who wants yesterdays girl
Who wants yesterdays papers
Nobody in the world

After this time I finally learned
After the pain and hurt
After all this what have I achieved
I’ve realized it’s time to leave

Cause
Cho wants yesterdays papers
Who wants yesterdays girl
Who wants yesterdays papers
Nobody in the world

Living a life of constant change
Every day means the turn of a page
Yesterdays papers are such bad news
Same thing applies to me and you

Who wants yesterdays papers
Who wants yesterdays girl
Who wants yesterdays papers
Nobody in the world

Seems very hard to have just one girl
When there’s a million in the world
All of these people just can’t wait
To fall right into their big mistake

Who wants yesterdays papers
Who wants yesterdays girl
Who wants yesterdays papers
Nobody in the world

Wake Up In The Morning – Rolling Stones

Wake up in the morning there’s a snap
around the place
Wake up in the morning there’s a crackle
in your face
Wake up in the morning there’s a pop that
realy says
“Rice Crispies for you and you and you”

Pour on the milk and listen to the snap that
says: “It’s nice”
Pour on the milk and listen to the crackle
of that rice
Get up in the morning to the pop that says:
“It’s rice”
Hear them talking crisp. Rice Crispies!!

Waiting On A Friend – Rolling Stones

Watching girls go passing by
It ain’t the latest thing
I’m just standing in a doorway
I’m just trying to make some sense
Out of these girls go passing by
The tales they tell of men
I’m not waiting on a lady
I’m just waiting on a friend

A smile relieves a heart that grieves
Remember what I said
I’m not waiting on a lady
I’m just waiting on a friend
I’m just waiting on a friend

Don’t need a whore
I don’t need no booze
Don’t need a virgin priest
But I need someone I can cry to
I need someone to protect
Making love and breaking hearts
It is a game for youth
But I’m not waiting on a lady
I’m just waiting on a friend

Ventilator Blues – Rolling Stones

When your spine is cracking and your hands, they shake,
Heart is bursting and you butt’s gonna break.
Your woman’s cussing, you can hear her scream,
You feel like murder in the first degree.
Ain’t nobody slowing down no way,
Ev’rybody’s stepping on their accelerator,
Don’t matter where you are,
Ev’rybody’s gonna need a ventilator.
When you’re trapped and circled with no second chances,
Your code of living is your gun in hand.
We can’t be browed by beating, we can’t be cowed by words,
Messed by cheating, ain’t gonna ever learn.
Ev’rybody walking ’round,
Ev’rybody trying to step on their Creator.
Don’t matter where you are, ev’rybody, ev’rybody gonna
Need some kind of ventilator, some kind of ventilator.
What you gonna do about it, what you gonna do?
What you gonna do about it, what you gonna do?
Gonna fight it, gonna fight it?

Take It Or Leave It – Rolling Stones

You can turn off and on more times
than a flashin’ neon sign.
When you want you’re bad
but you can be so kind

Just take it or leave it
Don’t tell your friend
just what you’re gonna do now
You take it or leave it, it’s just my life

There’ve been times when you tried
makin’ eyes at all my so called friends
Then you go, now you’re back
but you can be so kind

Just take it or leave it
Don’t tell your friend
just what you’re gonna do now
You take it or leave it, it’s just my life

Oh, la la la ta ta ta ta la la la la
Oh, la la la ta ta ta ta la la
Oh, la la la ta ta ta ta la la la la
Oh, la la la ta ta ta ta la la

I’m sick and tired of the smile that you give
when you don’t come home at night
You said you’d call, that’s a lie
but you could be so kind

Just take it or leave it
Don’t tell your friend
just what you’re gonna do now
You take it or leave it, it’s just my life

Oh, la la la ta ta ta ta la la la la
Oh, la la la ta ta ta ta la la
Oh, la la la ta ta ta ta la la la la
Oh, la la la ta ta ta ta la la

Oh, la la la ta ta ta ta la la la la
Oh, la la la ta ta ta ta la la

Salt Of The Earth – Rolling Stones

Let’s drink to the hard working people
Let’s drink to the lowly of birth
Raise your glass to the good and the evil
Let’s drink to the salt of the earth

Say a prayer for the common foot soldier
Spare a thought for his back breaking work
Say a prayer for his wife and his children
Who burn the fires and who still till the earth

And when I search a faceless crowd
A swirling mass of gray and
Black and white
They don’t look real to me
In fact, they look so strange

Raise your glass to the hard working people
Let’s drink to the uncounted heads
Let’s think of the wavering millions
Who need leaders but get gamblers instead

Spare a thought for the stay-at-home voter
His empty eyes gaze at strange beauty shows
And a parade of the gray suited grafters
A choice of cancer or polio

And when I look in the faceless crowd
A swirling mass of grays and
Black and white
They don’t look real to me
Or don’t they look so strange

Let’s drink to the hard working people
Let’s think of the lowly of birth
Spare a thought for the rag taggy people
Let’s drink to the salt of the earth

Let’s drink to the hard working people
Let’s drink to the salt of the earth
Let’s drink to the two thousand million
Let’s think of the humble of birth

Saint Of Me – Rolling Stones

Saint Paul the persecutor
Was a cruel and sinful man
Jesus hit him with a blinding light
And then his life began
I said yeah
I said yeah

Augustin knew temptation
He loved women, wine and song
And all the special pleasures
Of doing something wrong
I said yeah
I said yeah

I said yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
You’ll never make a saint of me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You’ll never make a saint of me

And could you stand the torture
And could you stand the pain
Could you put your faith in Jesus
When you’re burning in the flames

And I do believe in miracles
And I want to save my soul
And I know that I’m a sinner
I’m gonna die here in the cold
I said yes, I said yeah

I said yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
You’ll never make a saint of me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You’ll never make a saint of me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You’ll never make a saint of me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You’ll never make a saint of me

I thought I heard an angel cry
I thought I saw a teardrop falling from his eye

John the Baptist was a martyr
But he stirred up Herod’s hate
And Salome got her wish
To have him served up on a plate
I said yes
I said yeah

I said yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
You’ll never make a saint of me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You’ll never make a saint of me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You’ll never make a saint of me
Oh yeah, oh yeah
You’ll never make a saint of me

I thought I heard an angel cry
I thought I saw a teardrop falling from his eye
I thought I saw an angel cry

You’ll never make a saint of me
You’ll never make a saint of me
